left in wonder - December 28

I started taking the patch on the 7th of december and have had unprotected s_x on the 14th, 16th, 21st and 27th...i feel bloated and my upper abdomen feels somewhat starting to harden up. I have taken 2 hpt and both came up negative. I'm suppose to start my period on friday (12/31/04) but it normally comes 2-3 days early every month. yesterday when i had unprotected s_x, my fiance had small pinkish color in his white shirt..what could this possibly mean? Am i pregnant? When should I take the next hpt? please advise. Thank you in advance

I'd think it was too early to take an hpt... you're not even late for your period yet. Starting the pill can create the symptoms that you are experiencing. I'm no doctor, though, just speaking from experience. If your period normally comes early, but you've just started the patch, chances are it's just the patch. I've heard of women missing their period for up to 3 months at a time with the patch. If you normally get your period early, then I'd say you actually have a shorter cycle than the average, and actually always get your period on time? Just a thought. Take an hpt when you are 1 week late. If it's negative, go see your doctor. It's probably the effects of the patch. Just my advice, from experience. Good luck, whatever way you want this to go! :-)

i to was on the patch, i has all the pregnancy signs. I took plenty of test and even call the docor. She told me it was the side effects from the patch working into your system.

The manufacturer's web site says that when you start on the patch you should use backup contraception the first week unless the first day on the patch is also the first day of your period. Your dates and story makes it sound like you didn't get to read that far. The first I would suggest testing would be Jan 8th. Good luck!
